    I put most of my MP3s on the Fascinate and the Music Player sorts them by song name. I'd prefer to sort them by filename. Is there a way to change the sorting? If not, is there any 3rd party music player that allows sorting by filename and sounds as good (or better) than the default Music Player?

    Most music players are going to read the ID3 tag of the MP3 (Song name, artist, album, etc.) and sort that way. I'm not aware of a player that only read the file name. One solution, although a pain, is to use some desktop software to edit the ID3 tags so that they read the same as the file names. There are a variety out there that will do this although for what you want they would all probably have to be done manually.

    It was a pain for me to edit my playlist order on my old phone. Btw, how do you reorder your playlist on the touchwiz music player?
